I don't get it. This issue is specific to Python 2.7, no?

If you want to backport this feature from Python 3, I suggest to reuse the same code (so SHA 512). You might get the same random sequences on Python 2 and Python 3, but I don't think that it's matter :-) It's just that I expect that SHA-512 keeps more bits of entropy, than Python 2 hash function.
